"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"


Hop-tip-tip-tap
along the railing a bird,
red
bird,
looking for food, the little
red
bird.
Tip-tip-tap
beak peck pecks at seeds
spread there by not me,
I watch
red
bird
eat food and see
how small it is.
Hello, red
bird.
Red
bird
does not say hi,
red
bird
does not
reply.
